Where does ๐Ÿ‘พ Alien Monster emoji come from?

The Alien Monster emoji ๐Ÿ‘พ, also popularly called Space Invader emoji, was approved under Unicode 6.0 in 2010. On most major platforms, the emoji depicts a pixelated depiction of a purple alien with two eyes, antennae, and four tentacles. The WhatsApp version features a green alien without antennae. The Samsung version of the emoji instead depicts a jellyfish-like alien with six tentacles. Besides the Samsung version, most major platforms clearly based the design of the emoji on the aliens depicted in the 8-bit shooter video game Space Invaders (1978).

Due its pixelated depiction on most major platforms, the Alien Monster emoji ๐Ÿ‘พ is often used to refer to both space aliens as well as video games. Because of its typical cute design, the Alien Monster emoji ๐Ÿ‘พ may be used in less serious discussions of aliens than the similar Alien emoji ๐Ÿ‘ฝ. In any case, it is often used alongside other space-themed emoji such as the Alien emoji ๐Ÿ‘ฝ, the UFO emoji ๐Ÿ›ธ, the Rocket emoji ๐Ÿš€, and the Ringed Planet emoji ๐Ÿช.
